Swim Labs of El Dorado Hills


SwimLabs El Dorado Hills awarded “Start-Up Business of the Year Award” for 2017! Since opening our doors on October 4th, 2017, we have provided swim lessons to over 500 families in our local community! We provide group lessons, private lessons, and a variety of clinics. Our unique training facilities are indoors, with small warm-water pools specially designed with 360-degree video feedback technology. It’s the same video-feedback technology used by today’s Olympians. Our technology lets swimmers of all ages and abilities instantly view their own strokes, correct or enhance their form, adjust their technique, and master their skills. Our small, warm water pools help children discover confidence and joy in the water without the fears and distractions that can come with large, crowded swim classes. Our highly-trained instructors can stay focused on your child throughout the lesson and your child can stay focused on the joy of learning to swim. As a parent, you’ll enjoy the fun and the advantage of getting to see your child’s learning take place right before your eyes on our video screen. SwimLabs is also proud to announce our new partnership with IRONMAN! We’ve always been committed to endurance athletes, and now SwimLabs Swim Schools nationwide will be designated as “Official IRONMAN Training Centers.”
